Charlie Sheen Vows to Help Tornado Victims
Severe storms swept across America over a 24-hour period, beginning on Wednesday, April 27, levelling entire neighbourhoods and claiming nearly 300 lives.
The former "Two and a Half Men" star, Charlie Sheen who toured the damaged southern state on Sunday, vowed to help people by organising a benefit, reports the Associated Press.
He says, "I want (to bring) some money, hope, faith and healing to the area."
The actor decided to visit the city of Tuscaloosa after a University of Alabama student reached out to the star via Twitter.com, begging him to perform a relief show to raise funds for the devastated people.
In a response to the request, Sheen wrote, "Alabama; Heading your way. On a recon mission. My Cadre right behind me. You need help. I'm bringing it. DogSpeed."
A date for the event has not yet been announced.
The actor has been raising quite a bit of cash for good causes during tour stops on his one-man "My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Death Is Not an Option" trek across North America - Sheen cut a cheque to the Organization for Bipolar Disorder Awareness in Canada last month and also helped raise funds for disaster relief in Japan. On Saturday he raised $20,000 (GBP12,500) for the family of brain damaged baseball fan Bryan Stow at a show in San Francisco, California.
